hey render, u dont have to justify your rates for beading, i agree with you, you have to make a profit, every other business makes a profit so why shouldnt plasterers. what i dislike is someone creaming far too much off another person, like i said everyone is entitled to make a profit, but pay them peanuts as the old saying goes and what do you get. personally i would need £3.50-£4 per m2 and would skim up to 60m a day, u have to take into account the cost of deisel/wear and tear on the van/ tax and insurance/liability ins/income tax/accountants fees/bank charges etc, all of these costs have to be taken into consideration before you are left with your weekly take home.


so exactly how much (current climate considered) do you actually think we are making per metre bearing in mind it's labour only

I remember doing a mp job for someone who let the plols do all the main walls and we were left with all the window walls. do you know such a person sprayit. ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

I know that fanny, but because for weeks there was lads saying how little work they had we thought we would offer it and unlike other firms who knock you once you have already started we are always upfront on what we pay, saves a lot of time and gets rid of all the pricks who think they can plaster. You also have the ones on here shouting how they can do 3 60m2 sets a day but they run away when offered a nice run. were talking over 1200m2, if they did 50m2 a day that would give then 125 a day. and its was aout 5 weeks work for one man doing that. 125 a day aint good but 50m2 a day aint busting a gut

£2.35 is ok when you know your going to get paid,better than £3.25 and then chasing your money for weeks or even months.

thanx for that mate but as you know its a little tight to pay digs as well. but £2.35 aint bad if you local. and like you say 50m2 aday ain busting a gut. Some people are getting really greedy of late. They want to make a grand a week and dnt wana wrk for it.
